Default March/April Set 4

This set isn't a full set but rather files that were on the harder side and would have likely been passed by other judges so they were given to TC_Halogen to look at.

Excite Bike [Another] (gold stinger) [3/10]
- joke’s on you, no joke review from me

Finding Her Not (Deamerai) [7/10]
- OT viable with some fixes.
- noticeable copy/paste in some spots, please change up the patterns a bit more as you’re working with a song whose chart elements are for percussion/atonal instrumentation, no excuses to not play around with patterns a bit more
- 28.218: relevance to the hi-hats can be a bit better; you go for them a bit more aggressively (and unsurprisingly, correctly) at 35.253
- these faster bursts are reminiscent of Mishnu, perhaps a bit easier - good control over distribution and patterning but barrages are much more frequent and run for quite a while, so it’s pretty damn rough
- 1:21.183: ^, if this jump is for a cutoff snare, you’re missing another at 1:21.448, 1:29.678, etc -- however, if this is for the lower piano note (which I believe it is), then you technically should have jumps at 1:23.307, 1:25.430, etc; this jump is an inconsistency in general -- though I do notice the deliberate chaining of single notes in spots like 1:22.643, 1:31.138, etc. Might need to rethink the structure just a touch here.
- 2:40.032: the anchors here are a really nice touch; make sure you’re giving them the full emphasis they deserve - 2:40.696 should be a R if we’re following it, 2:44.944 a L, etc.
- chart’s not bad at all, but it does have a bit of a drag to it because the song’s structure isn’t entirely taken advantage of at times, which leads to a lot of repetition
- stands to be quite memorable once it hits the game; this will give the top players a run for their money for sure

Now THATS what I call Mashcore! (gold stinger) [5.5/10]
- some sampling in the song causes the BPM to change and in general, make the chart off by about 5ms or so
- 19.662: make these [12][12][34] if you’re going to continue after the mini-jack; the stress on right hand is a bit too much
- 32.947: no, to all of this -- while the burst can be frame-fixed, the 3-arrow 16th jack on the left arrow cannot and having jump-gluts like this at 280 BPM is simply not acceptable
- 38.412: accenting discrepancy within same section; having the mini-jacks at 39.269 instead of the jumps allows you to accent the more noticeable piano sample at 39.376
- 56.572: no need for the minijack here
- 58.019: no to a 3-note minijack at 280
- 1:34.019: having to do this second instance in a row is brutal; also, it actually might be a bit more representative of the song having it at 1:31.126 instead
- 1:37.233: unnecessarily stresses the left hand
- 1:45.322: ^
- 1:51.912: ^
- 2:00.751: glaring missing note
- 2:09.912: three note minijack at this speed, nope - not gonna keep mentioning them at this point
- 2:10.769: even when it’s alone
- 2:15.376: ^
- 2:16.769: this long of a 48th burst is too much at this speed; reminder that this is 210 BPM 16th jacks on each hand
- 2:26.305: yikes
- 2:34.930: unnecessary minijack
- 2:48.001: if you absolutely want the triple here, this burst needs to be cut short one note
- 2:55.447: nope
- 3:00.483: ^
- 3:00.805: at this speed, this transition is absolutely awful to play through
- 3:03.108: another glaring missing note
- 3:15.376: …
- 3:16.983: these bursts should not have 16th minijacks (or offset 16th note minijacks)
- 3:18.269: ^, etc - not gonna keep mentioning it
- 3:22.555: this 12th note chip starts right at the cymbal crash at 3:22.340
- 3:31.876: stress on left-hand again (5 consecutive notes)
- 3:39.483: see 2:48.001
- 3:41.412: nope
- 3:42.483: … this one could have been entirely avoided, why do you do these things ;__;
- 4:02.894: having a 3-note mini-jack during a stream to land into triples like this is absolutely insane at this tempo - reminder that you have 8-note thing on the left side like that
- 4:04.555: I get it, but again - this is just not acceptable at this tempo; the later 2-note mini-jack couplets are BARELY acceptable at this speed
- 4:05.519: uh
- 4:05.733: uh
- 4:16.715: etc
- 5:08.719: you’ll need to cut this burst to the 16th for it to not be ridiculous like this
- 5:20.412: …………
- quite an overzealous attempt at a brutally hard chart in game; it’s not… completely bad, but the lack of restraint given the current tempo is simply too much to allow in game in the current state

theyaremanycolors (Ghost_Medley) [8.5/10]
- 64th section is a little draggy
- 1:29.249: don’t quite feel like this burst should be as smooth as it is given the abrasion of the buzz; splitting it up or making it a touch faster would be a bit more accurate, I think (multiple instances)
- nice jump usage to syncopate to the chopped air horn, though I do think it could be better at 1:35.416.
- good approach, pretty creative idea!

Finding Her Not:

- noticeable copy/paste in some spots - Some parts were left out intentionally identical (like the intro piano). Though i've updated the file to have stuff minorly less copy-pasted. Let me know what other parts should I consider changing to make it more necessarily different.

- 1:21.183 - They were going to the cutoff snares, added missing jumps on the 16ths.

- 2:40.032 - It was done like that before, but it creates a very gross cbtrap / good rush trap so I had to break it in order to not clash it awkwardly with the burst.

Updated the file in the batch.

Made some changes to the green section of theyaremanycolors, glad you enjoy the file's gimmick though!
